About Flags for the Flagless

Police officers Charley Foley and Bradley Clark founded “Flags for the Flagless” after repeatedly seeing un-used flag poles throughout Tucson, AZ. Charley Foley comes from a line of veterans and Bradley Clark is a 20 year combat Army veteran. Both are mindfully respectful of all that our country stands for and what the American Flag represents. They both hope to foster a sense of patriotism and pride in the community with the “Flags for the Flagless” project.

“FFF”, a 501(c)(3) organization, seeks out businesses, organizations, homes and schools to provide American Flags for classrooms and un-used flag poles. They also take on an educational role, providing historical facts, images and American Flag protocol information to the public. “Flags for the Flagless” plans to reach out to as many schools as possible, on both a local and national level, to ensure that American Flags will fly in their classrooms. And they will continue to hang American Flags on flag poles throughout Tucson, Arizona and the USA.

Warriors are not always the fastest or strongest people. Strength and speed can be developed through training. Warriors are those who choose to stand between their enemy and all that they love or hold sacred. Erik Hite was a warrior. There were not many dry eyes during the flag dedication ceremony today.
The words spoken by Rep. Martha McSally , Sherry Graham-Potter, Nohemy Hite, 10 year-old Samantha Hite and Jack St Louis will reverberate long after the sun sets on this day.🇺🇸

It is the Soldier, not the minister
Who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the Soldier, not the reporter
Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the Soldier, not the poet
Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the Soldier, not the campus organizer
Who has given us freedom to protest.
It is the Soldier, not the lawyer
Who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the Soldier, not the politician
Who has given us the right to vote.
It is the Soldier who salutes the flag,
Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag,
Who allows the protester to burn the flag.
- Charles M. Province

I will love this country until my dying breath, and it's thanks to the men and woman who served this great country in the Armed Forces, and who are no longer with us, that we are able to enjoy the freedom and liberties we have. Let us not EVER forget the sacrifices that were made so that we may live free today. 🇺🇸 ... See MoreSee Less

Coming soon to downtown Tucson. The Downtown Patrnership wants to display as many American flags and bunting as they can this summer. With little funds to make this happen they reached out to me for assistance. I was able to loan them 100 flags and 85 bunting to hang throughout the area thanks to some generous donors. Look for them all to be up starting Flag Day 🇺🇸 ... See MoreSee Less

The Lexington Battle Green, properly known as Lexington Common, is the historic town common of Lexington, Massachusetts. It was at this site that the opening shots of the Battles of Lexington and Concord were fired on April 19, 1775, starting the American Revolutionary War. Now a public park, the common is a National Historic Landmark.
On April 19, 1775, local militiamen emerged from Buckman Tavern adjacent to the common and formed two rows on the common to face arriving British troops. The militiamen suffered the first casualties of the American Revolution when the two sides exchanged fire.
The battle green is one of only eight locations in the United States where the U.S. flag is specifically authorized by law to fly twenty-four hours a day, though the U.S. Flag Code (4 U.S.C. §4-10) allows for the flag to be displayed anywhere "24 hours a day if properly illuminated during the hours of darkness."

Peace Officers Memorial Day

President John F. Kennedy declared the first Peace Officers Memorial Day on May 15, 1962, as a tribute to peace officers and in honor of peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, lost their lives or became disabled in the line of duty. This day has been observed in our country annually ever since.
On this day, and every day, it is fitting to honor those peace officers who gave their lives to protect ours, and to thank the law enforcement officers who serve for their dedication and service to our communities.
In accordance with Flag Code section 7(m), the United States flag is to be displayed at half-staff for the entire day in honor of Peace Officers Memorial Day, Monday, May 15, 2017. By a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962, as amended (76 Stat. 676), and by Public Law 103-322, as amended (36 U.S.C. 136-137), the President has been authorized and requested to designate May 15 of each year as "Peace Officers Memorial Day" and the week in which it falls as "Police Week."
